Strains of Stereolab’s ethereal chugging rhythms and Can’s meandering explorations can be sensed as this album develops, reverberating with Angel Deradoorian’s attempts to “…reach herself…” as she journeys toward the sun. Restrained analogue instrumentation and sparsely placed synthesiser drones flower into modern Krautrock-inspired gentle psychedelia, where I find myself staring off into audial space.

Angel has collaborated with percussionist Samer Ghadry and fellow multi-instrumentalist Dave Harrington (Darkside) in a seemingly childlike innocence that sparkles collectively into life as an often starkly intimate post-pandemic introspective expression of self-discovery amongst the ether. The ultimate destination track being Sun, closing the album perfectly with Middle Eastern inflections asking transcendental questions of the performer and the listener during their vision quest.
